Wawa Legion Moves Forward on Lift Project

Efforts to make Wawa's Legion Hall more accessible are progressing.

Royal Canadian Legion Branch 429 President Mary Anne Pearson has confirmed to JJAM FM News that the Legion has awarded the contract for installation of the elevator to Michael Moore Construction of Sault Ste. Marie, with plans for the project itself to commence "when the permits are in place".

Intended to improve the ability of those with mobility issues to move between the upper and lower floors of the building, the lift follows other efforts to improve accessibility of the Legion Hall: a barrier-free washroom and a ramp in the downstairs area.
